Mahabalipuram
 

Mahabalipuram (Mamallapuram)Mahabalipuram (Mamallapuram ) is 59km south of Madras. It was an old port city and capital of the Pallava kings. It consists of 4 kinds of rock structures, cut-out monolithic rock temples (rathas), cut-in cave temples (mandapams), temples constructed from multiple pieces and materials, and bas-relief sculptures carved on large rocks. The combination of old 7th and 8th century Pallava carvings, temples and the wonderful Mahabalipuram Beach make the place a beautiful tourist destination.
